What Mars Retrograde Is Really About

Updated: Sep 12, 2021

Mars, the planet of action and DESIRE, retrogrades in its home sign of Aries Sep 9 - Nov 13, 2020 - something that hasn't happened since 1988.

Learn why this is a gift and how to utilize the energy:

In order to be guided by desire, you must know you’re worthy. Tap back into your essence this MARS RETROGRADE.

What's a Retrograde?

Retrogrades are merely optical illusions, an apparent change in the movement of the planet through the sky. It is not real in that the planet does not physically start moving backwards in its orbit. It just appears to do so because of the relative positions of the planet and Earth and how they are moving around the Sun. However, the energy of the planet is perceived in the opposite direction - what was external, is now internal.

The planet Mars represents our energy, drive, motivation, sexuality, aggression - ‘masculine energy.’ Its extended homestay in Aries, due to this retrograde - which hasn't happened since 1988 - and the squares (conflicting angle) to planets in Capricorn are reasons some have rough predictions for rest of 2020. But we can only control our lives & how we respond to what happens in the collective.

We live in a friendly universe & create our own realities through our thoughts & beliefs. Essentially, if you see it it’s because you believe it. It all begins & ends with you. YOU are the prayer.

Instead of decreased energy & motivation, this ‘get sh*t done’ energy turning inwards is actually wildly empowering if embraced. Let’s examine the driving force behind action, sexual energy & aggression - DESIRE! Which is now turned inwards.

Tap back into your ESSENCE, your INNER CHILD this Mars Retrograde:

Desire is a key component to manifestation. It’s the point of creation & intrinsically entwined with the feminine - raising a contradiction to Mars’ masculinity. Something we’ll see more of as society shifts back into a matriarchy.

Our soul came here for a mission & speaks to us through desires. Simply desiring something is proof you’re meant to have it - desire is future you asking you to make accommodations now in order to BE a match to receive & maintain the fulfillment of the desire. Self sabotage is rooted in getting something before we feel ready.

Desire creates frustration when we feel blocked. Usually due to resistance developed around the fulfillment of the desire - feelings of unworthiness, doubt, disconnection from soul, depression (absence of desire), etc.

Remove resistance by tapping back into your essence, the true you. The you before all the bs, conditioning and coping mechanisms. The you who never stopped singing & dancing. The YOU whose soul was lit up.

Allow Mars rx to reignite your soul via desire. Tap back into your inner child, communicate with your soul & fall back in love with life - something needed at this stage of 2020 (nothing is a coincidence!). Desire is future you reminding you that you’re worthy.
